Jacksonville Magazine opens its doors to interns from colleges near and far. Many past interns have gone on to work at a variety of publications, and a few members of the Jax Mag staff started out in the trenches as interns themselves. (Just kidding, we don’t have any trenches. They’re really more like ditches. Ditches dug by interns.)
Here are a few profiles of recent and current interns. If you’re interested in interning with us, please visit this page to get details on how to apply.
Alexis McCartney // Editorial Intern
When she isn’t writing for Jacksonville Magazine, you can catch her snooping around a consignment shop for treasures, or jamming out to her favorite Led Zeppelin album.
Alexis hopes to further a career in the fashion magazine industry in places where the skylines are adorned by tall buildings & glistened by city lights.
Riley Wolf // Editorial Intern
Riley Wolf is a senior at the University of North Florida studying multimedia journalism and a fall editorial intern here at Jacksonville Magazine. She loves a big city but craves the beach life, which makes Jacksonville the perfect fit for her. When she isn’t at Jax Mag you can catch her beach side enjoying an Açaì bowl at her favorite café, Delicomb.
Riley has a passion for unveiling the truth in this world with her writing and photography and plans to pursue a career that involves creativity in the magazine industry.
Chelsea Yanochik // Advertising Intern
Being a Jacksonville native, she loves to attend the Jacksonville Jaguars games with her dad. She loves to watch movies and funny advertisements on TV, especially the Geico ones. While she’s not doing that you can find her shopping, mainly for shoes. She loves to have the latest fashion trends at a bargain. Growing up dancing, you will always find Chelsea moving if music is playing, especially in her car!
She hopes one day to work for a magazine, maybe a fashion one and is excited to be interning at Jacksonville Magazine in hopes to further her career.

She was born and raised in Sacramento, California, and prior to starting her internship at Jacksonville Magazine, she had only visited Florida once. She is adjusting to life in the Sunshine State with flying colors.
